Cellular Lipid Metabolism by Sven-Olof Olofsson, Pontus Boström, Jens Lagerstedt (auth.),

By Sven-Olof Olofsson, Pontus Boström, Jens Lagerstedt (auth.), Christian Ehnholm (eds.)

For years lipids have involved mobile biologists and biochemists because of their profound results on cellphone functionality. "Cellular Lipid Metabolism" highlights new ideas and up to date findings, but additionally reports very important discoveries made long ago. remarkable foreign specialists give a contribution thirteen chapters at the genetics, molecular and mobilephone biology of lipids. proposing analyses on the molecular point they display the rules wherein mobile lipid metabolism features. extra, various exciting observations that can't but be defined are pointed out, stimulating the readers to destiny reviews. This ebook presents a useful resource of knowledge for biomedical researchers in strength metabolism, vascular biology, endocrinology and lipidology.

Combinatorial Chemistry Part A

The significantly acclaimed laboratory commonplace for greater than 40 years, tools in Enzymology is likely one of the such a lot hugely revered courses within the box of biochemistry. seeing that 1955, every one quantity has been eagerly awaited, often consulted, and praised by way of researchers and reviewers alike. greater than 260 volumes were released (all of them nonetheless in print) and masses of the cloth is proper even this present day - actually a vital booklet for researchers in all fields of lifestyles sciences.

Advances in Microbial Physiology, Vol. 20

This quantity in a research-level sequence covers assorted elements of microbial body structure and biochemistry together with inositol metabolisms in yeasts, bacterial adhesion, natural acids, the bacterial flagellum and the mechanical behaviour of bacterial cellphone partitions. it really is meant to be of use to microbiologists, biochemists and biotechnologists.

The Molecular Biology of Cyanobacteria

Greater than 20 years in the past, as a fledgling graduate a few extraordinary features of the genetics of those scholar who used to be simply commencing to find out about those organisms yet to pay respects to the 2 volumes of organisms that will develop into my fundamental learn Carr of Whitton that performed very important roles in my concentration, the booklet of Noel Carr and Brian personal considering cyanobacteria (and doubtless in Whitton's The Biology of the Blue-Green Algae within the improvement of many others as well).

2000). Furthermore, changes in plasma 24(S)-OHC levels are found in patients with multiple sclerosis (Leoni et al. 2002). Serum 24(S)-OHC concentration apparently reflects the rate of cholesterol turnover in the brain, and it has been suggested as a new diagnostic indicator of diseases affecting the CNS. Hepatic cholesterol-7a-hydroxylase (encoded by CYP7A1) carries out the initial enzymatic step in the major, so-called neutral pathway of bile acid synthesis (reviewed by Björkhem and Eggertsen 2001) .
